Will this build run BF3 on mid at 80FPS in a 50+ player server?

AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4GHz

Radeon HD 6850 1GB

8GB 1333MHz

1TB 7200RPM

700w OCZ ModXstream PSU

*Also, would my power supply (700w), be able to run CrossfireX on two of the 6850's?

    Ohhh, and by the way, monitor is 1920x1080. Would I be able to run it at 1440x900 with the following criteria in the title? Thanks.
  2. First off that's a really subjective question so it's REALLY hard to give a definitive answer, but...my guess is that you'll struggle at high/ultra. The 6850 isn't the worlds best performer and your CPU will show its age in what amounts to a very CPU intensive environment.
  3. Doubtful unless you drop down the settings a good bit. BF3 is a pretty graphic intensive game and the 6850 is kinda puny when it comes to 1920x1080. A pair of them would give a lot better chance of hitting the frame rates you want. Upgrading to a 6 core processor would give you a lot better chance of hitting that as well because a 50 player server is a pretty big load for a CPU and the more threads the better.
  4. No it won't. Specifically the 50+ player requirement. Your CPU just doesn't have the muscle for all the calculations.
  5. That CPU isnt that bad and will still give decent frame rates, just not in the mid 80's.

    Also, I forgot to ask, is this a 60Hz monitor? If so, then you wont see any difference between 60 and 80 fps anyway.
  6. No really. The 965 will struggle with that many players/calculations. If you keep it below 32 it won't be nearly as bad. This will offload the FPS bottleneck to the GPU.
  7. The answer to your question is no. 6850 is not a high end card to average even 40FPS at 1080p your likely going to be at low settings maybe some medium with no extra eyecandy. Your CPU is a slight bottleneck too but that can be fixed by OC'ing if your on the stock cooler try to take it to 3.7GHz (980BE speeds) if you have a better cooler shoot for 4GHz pair that with a much better GPU and you can get over 60FPS at decent settings.

    Heres an idea of how CPU's compare if you match them with a higher GPU on a 64 player map
